Montag went to Black's home to hide books.... to incriminate Black for the people who were accused for his own actions. Montag's visit was based upon a desire for revenge.

Mrs. Black, are you asleep in there? he thought. This isn't good, but your husband did it to others and never asked and never wondered and never worried. And now since you're a fireman's wife, it's your house and your turn, for all the houses your husband burned and the people he hurt without thinking. .
The house did not reply.
He hid the books in the kitchen and moved from the house again to the alley and looked back, and the house was still dark and quiet, sleeping.
